Since the launch of the E-invoice Exchange Market Pilot and the Remittance Delivery Assessment Work Group last year, notable progress has been made to catalyze the modernization of business-to-business (B2B) payments in the United States.
Over the year, the Federal Reserve has continued to collaborate with the industry to advance understanding on the importance of B2B payments modernization. This collaboration has taken different forms, resulting in progress among industry work groups, market pilot activities and strong enthusiasm for efforts to advance modernization.
Straight-through processing yields multiple benefits for businesses and alleviates the pain points that result from manual business-to-business (B2B) payment processes.
